Botulinum toxin (Botox) is a protein that temporarily and reversibly paralyze muscles and is used for both cosmetic and medical purposes. With cosmetic procedures, Botox is used to treat lines and creases caused by facial expression. This is achieved by relaxing, in a controlled way, some of the muscles responsible for facial expresión. Botox is an effective treatment for reducing creases and expression lines and, therefore, improving the appearance of the face.
Botox is used mainly to treat creases and expression lines on the forehead and areas between the eyebrows and around the eyes (the so-called laughter lines).
